There is a theme though the story is rather weak in dealing with it. Human nature often does not feel empathetic to how animals in the wild might feel. Rainsford, as the hunter becoming the hunted, gets this empathy lesson first hand. This story, however, is an escape story which means its primary focus is to entertain rather than inform or enlighten. I'll take a look for the quotes but suffice to say they are obvious once you see them.
